As we ring in the New Year, we enter a new decade! So what movies can we expect in the first month of the New Year? Vampires, Romance, and the Supernatural…oh my! If those movie themes do not appeal to you, there are plenty of other films being released this month. Daybreakers, The Book of Eli, and Legion have been promoted the most in my opinion. All three take place in the future and humanity has to be saved in some way.
Family films of the month include Jackie Chan’s The Spy Next Door, Extraordinary Measures, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is the Tooth Fairy. The rom com movies of the month are Leap Year starring Academy Award nominee Amy Adams and When in Rome starring Kristen Bell and Josh Duhamel.
My spotlight pick of the month is Creation, which is based on the biography,“Annie’s Box”, written by Charles Darwin’s great great-grandson.. The film stars Paul Bettany as Charles Darwin and Academy Award winner Jennifer Connelly (“A Beautiful Mind”). Well that’s my January overview, click on the link below to check out the rest of the movies coming out in the next month.

Here’s another romantic comedy which is coming out this January 2010. The other romantic comedy that I first previewed [coming out in the same month] was “When in Rome” starring Kristen Bell and Josh Duhamel. For more info. on “When in Rome” click here.
“Leap Year” stars Amy Adams (“Night at the Musuem: Battle of the Smithsonian”) and Matthew Goode (“Imagine Me & You”). Here is a synopsis via IMDB.com:
A woman (Adams) who has an elaborate scheme to propose to her boyfriend on Leap Day, an Irish tradition which occurs every time the date February 29 rolls around, faces a major setback when bad weather threatens to derail her planned trip to Dublin. With the help of an innkeeper, however, her cross-country odyssey just might result in her getting engaged.
“Leap Year” comes out in theaters on January 8, 2010. Full cast list can be found here. This film sort of reminds me of “The Matchmaker” starring Janeane Garofalo. The plot lines differ but when I first watched the trailer [of “Leap Year”] I immediately thought of “The Matchmaker” with the mention of Irish traditions/festivals. If you haven’t seen it, I would suggest seeing “The Matchermaker” it’s quite funny.
